Friday Afternoon Joke

A man enters a bar and orders a drink. The bar has a robot bartender.
The robot serves him a perfectly prepared cocktail, and then asks him,
"What's your IQ?" The man replies "150," and the robot proceeds to make
conversation about global warming factors, quantum physics and
spirituality, biomimicry, environmental interconnectedness, string
theory, nano-technology, and sexual proclivities.

The customer is very impressed and thinks, "This is really cool." He
decides to test the robot. He walks out of the bar, turns around, and
comes back in for another drink. Again, the robot serves him the
perfectly prepared drink and asks him, "What's your IQ?" The man
responds, "about a 100." Immediately the robot starts talking, but this
time, about football, NASCAR, baseball, cars, beer, guns, and breasts.
Really impressed, the man leaves the bar and decides to give the robot
one more test. He heads out and returns, the robot serves him and
asks, "What's your IQ?" The man replies, "Er, 50, I think."

And the robot says....... real........ slowly........
"So............... ya .......... gonna......... vote .........
for........... Bush ........ again???"

Miserable Failure

Jan. 26 (Bloomberg) -- A majority of Americans said the presidency of George W. Bush has been a failure and that they would be more likely to vote for congressional candidates who oppose him, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll.

Fifty-two percent of adults said Bush's administration since 2001 has been a failure, down from 55 percent in October. Fifty- eight percent described his second term as a failure. At the same point in former President Bill Clinton's presidency, 70 percent of those surveyed by Gallup said they considered it a success and 20 percent a failure.

Bachem Macuno Strikes Again

Oprah is sitting on the couch next to President Bush. She looks very, very unhappy. His lips are pursed nervously.
'Mr. President, when I selected your book, A Million Little Pieces of Democracy, I thought it was a work of non-fiction.'
'Oprah, I understand that. My advisors tell me that I am perfectly within my rights to call it non-fiction. Congress gave me full powers to entertain readers, and I am very serious about that responsibility.'
'But according to The Smoking Gun, there is a lot in the book that isn't true.'
'I was writing with the best intelligence available to me. Intelligence agencies around the world supported the book as factual.'
'To a greater or lesser extent.'
'You bet.'
'Well,' Oprah sighed, exasperated, 'It is difficult for me to talk to you because I really feel duped... I feel that you betrayed millions of readers.'
'Now, I know that people may feel that way. But this really isn't about the book at all.'
'What isn't?'
'The book.'
'The book isn't about the book, sir?'
'That's right!'
A confused pause. 'Then what is the book about?'
'It's about spreading Democracy.'
'Into a million little pieces?'
'The more pieces Democracy is in, the freer we are as a people.'
